Iris Dark Gtk Theme: v1.10 by TheVirtualDragon
Iris Dark Gtk Theme: v1.10
Iris Dark is a flat theme that uses varying shades and tones to create distinction and a modern experience. It supports Gtk 3.18 and Gtk 2 (using the Murrine engine).

I'd appreciate it if you could report any bugs you find at
Follow the Iris Project page on Google+:…
Also see the Iris Light theme:

The icons remain unreleased for now :(

If you wish to, you can buy the theme to help support it's development.

Happy tweaking :)

I'll be honest, I had to look up what an Email Receipt was...

(Can you even put buttons in emails?)

Enlarge for high quality.

Daily UI Challenge 8: Music Player by TheVirtualDragon
Daily UI Challenge 8: Music Player
Had a go at doing some smartwatch things. All the mockups I've seen for a music player on a  smart watch show the song and the artist and all but to me the point of a watch is to look at the time...Which is usually written in tiny text in aforementioned mockups. So in this, the time is the main focus and the music playing is displayed through the artist's image and text. Not 100% happy with this but haven't had much time recently and this was fairly quick. May update in the future.

And yes, I know I've missed out like like 6 days of this but I'm doing them somewhat randomly.

Edit - This is the base watch image -…
Update to just say that both the Iris themes have broken the 10,000 download barrier, in just 3 months! In total, this means that there have been 25,000 downloads of an Iris variant! I'm being told that this is actually a pretty big number for the short amount of time it's been open for the public which seems strangely strange to me for various reasons.

Also, have I mentioned another Gtk theme and an Iris variant I'm working on? You might not get to see it very soon because school is taking up my time horrendously and will continue to do so for at least another 2 years, which means Iris and indeed future projects may get slower updates (once every 3 or 4 months)...

I just wanted to say that after looking through your gallery, I feel like your UI design is the best paradigm shift since Apple made the first home computer. Thank you so much for your work.

That's a huge compliment, sir. I personally believe that my UI design is fairly average, and would not go to such lengths as to compare it to something as legendary as Apple's work, but thank you, I appreciate it a lot :)
